Amplimesh panel lift
The door panels are made from a heavy duty aluminium extruded box section frame encasing a 68A style amplimesh sheet. The sheet is held tightly in place via a U channel, constructed into the frame and then via numerous 3/16 rivets.
Sectional overhead doors are made by hinging together 4 or more ( depending on height) horizontal panels, that lift up and when in the open position sit parallel to the ceiling. The benefits of the sectional overhead door are that, at no time during its opening operation the door panels do not protrude past the vertical position of the door. Another benefit is that no opening clearance is lost when the door is fully open as long as a minimum headroom of 250mm is available.
•Where Posts are required we will unless otherwise instructed use 3mm X 150 X 50 RHS galvanised posts. These posts can be powdercoated to match the door.
•These doors are designed for Automatic Operation. Our preferred automatic door opener is the Robot Electronics GD-81/H.This opener has been designed as a heavy duty high cycle door opener that can be fitted with logic controls, auto closing timer and photoelectric safety beams. It requires a 240V power point. Various access control systems, such as remote handsets, card readers, keypads, keyswitches or electromagnetic induction loops can be fitted to these openers.
NOTE: These headroom and sideroom requirements are to be used as a guide only. Through various techniques we can often reduce the size of these requirements. This however, is depending on various features to the opening.

NOT BY A LONG SHOT.
Your decision on which basement security door to buy is probably far more important than you think.
Other than your lift, this door will be the largest moving item in your building. As a consequence of this, it has many moving parts that will eventually over time fail and require replacement. Unfortunately, with each failure comes added cost, a temporary loss in security and an overall inconvenience to the car park users. These factors, coupled with the high frequency of use this door must endure, emphasise the importance of choosing a strong, reliable and robust door.
What features does Accent Amplimesh Sectional Overhead door have that sets it apart from the crowd?
•Our aluminium extruded intermediate rails have been engineered in the following shape which is substantially stronger than many of our competitors.
Many of our competitors use the following frame:
•Our top and bottom aluminium extruded rails are engineered differently to the intermediate rails, in that they are extruded in the following shape:
This extrusion is 110mm in height and consequently is much stronger that the Intermediate rails. Our reason for this is because experience has shown us that it is the top and bottom rails that are impacted the most by vehicles and thieves. By strengthening these two rails, we have reduced the potential damage to our door. It is worth noting that many of our competitors only use the smaller intermediate rail for their top and bottom rails.
•Our Amplimesh sheet is welded into the frame which;
•Our tracks, hardware and hinges are made from galvanized or zincannealed steel.
•We use 4mm steel cables to lift the door. Many competitors only use 3mm cables. Over time cables will fray and require replacement, however, as the 4mm cables are 33% stronger than the 3mm cables they will last significantly longer.
•We only use 1.6mm heavy duty tracks and our pulley wheels are cast iron (not plastic like many of our competitors).
•We use 3mm thick galvanized steel hinges. Many of our competitors only use 1.6mm.
•Our rollers are ball bearing machined steel with nylon coating which are extremely durable and quieter than non bearing wheels.
•We use quality high cycle springs. Our minimum wire size is 6.3mm ranging to 8mm depending on the weight of the door. Many of our competitors use 4mm wire springs that have a much less life cycle than the 7mm or 8mm wire springs.
•We use Irwin Sick photoelectric safety beams which are made in Germany. Many of our competitors use Asian made domestic quality safety beams.
•All wires are run inside surface mounted flexible conduit and not just glued or plugged to the walls.
•We weld a steel plate around the push arm that prevents thieves releasing the manual override ring from outside the door via a rod.
